Volunteers are the core of our program.
The dedication of time and talent of our volunteer corp is what makes Southern Reins such a magical place. We are grateful to each and every one of our volunteers for their contribution to the success of our program, and for joining our Southern Reins' family to help people with disabilities throughout our community.
We offer numerous volunteer opportunities; including direct program support, barn help, equine care, special events, special projects and internships. The benefits of volunteering at Southern Reins are many, and include offering vital help to support our participants, connecting with others and making new friends, and bringing fun and fulfillment to your life while making our community a better place.
To be a program volunteer at Southern Reins, you must meet the following qualifications:
